    Q: Patti asks: "What's a good way to use acrylic craft paints on cards?"
    A: There are so many ways! A really basic way is just to dribble and dot paint onto a piece of cardstock, and then scrape the paint around with an old gift card or other straight-edged tool. Here are 3 tutorials that use the technique, so you can have a starting point to play:
    Scrape Painting
    Acrylic Batik
    Acrylic Stencil Deboss
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Mel has a tip for the Bleached Out Images tutorial: " If you can't use bleach you can paint on the cardstock with white craft ink wash to get similar results sans the smell."
